Natural beauty products are thoughtful gifts for anyone who prefers organic or green beauty items. These products contain plant or animal-product ingredients to make your skin feel great. They all have a satisfying fragrance that brings to mind the delights of the environment. What they don't contain are synthetic materials and harsh chemicals that can be irritants. That means that if your gift's recipient has sensitive skin or just wants to avoid chemical additives, she'll appreciate your choice of present. The following are some lovely natural beauty products to consider.
Rosewater Body Lotion
Rosewater Body Lotion from Crabtree & Evelyn is formulated to be soaked up easily by your skin. Shea butter provides moisture, aided by evening primrose, almond, and coconut oils. The lotion gets its name from the rosewater extract it contains; the other botanicals represented are peony, magnolia, and elderflower. When you smell this lotion, you'll be enthralled by how violet and musk complement the rosewater fragrance. No parabens, phthaletes, or propylene glycol can be found in this product. The Rosewater Body Lotion costs $24.00 for a 245-ml bottle.

Burt's Bees has created a body wash that will soothe dry skin every time. It contains shea butter, which could easily win an award for being everyone's favorite moisturizer. Burt's Bees also poured in some cow's milk, so this body wash is like a milkshake for your body. Customers rave about the body wash's delicious scent. And there are no parabens, petrochemicals, or phthalates in this product. A 350-ml bottle is priced at $8.00.
Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Body Lotion

Cucumbers aren't just good in salads; they're also an important component of this lotion that moisturizes skin and soothes sensitive patches. In addition, the lotion contains jojoba oil to soften skin, plus aloe vera for its important minerals and proteins.
